'Growing for Health' - a talk by Liz Hudson
Learn how to use plants and gardening to help physical and mental wellbeing, wildlife and the environment!

Liz Hutson will be in the Green Room on Wednesday 18th March holding a talk which will cover the many ways plants and gardening can help our health, plus practical ways you can do this, regardless of individual circumstances.

Concerns about our health and the environment are at an all-time high and we can feel overwhelmed and powerless. This talk will show you how you can take simple steps to help both and why it is so important to do so.

Keen gardener and nutritional therapist Liz will discuss:

Why plants and gardening are a key part of the lifestyle of some of the longest living people on the planet
Benefits to mental and physical health – including several you may not know about
What plants have the highest nutritional content and how to maximise this when buying or growing these
Practical tips if you are short on time, space, money or expertise
Using plants to benefit wildlife and help mitigate climate change
How plants improve indoor quality and why this is so vital
What to do if you don't have a garden
Tickets for this talk are £5 per person with all proceeds going to Greenfingers Charity for children in hospice care. There will be a 20 minute break in the middle and tea or coffee will be provided.

Please book in advance to avoid disappointment by visiting our tills area or calling on 01995 642980.
